Nissan has revealed the new look of the facelifted 2018 X-Trail, and the good news is that it will be available in South Africa just in time for those end of year bonuses. Based on the European X-Trail, and not the US-spec Nissan Rogue version, it is expected to come with a number of innovative new safety and comfort features. However, final specs and pricing have not been finalised and will only be announced closer to the as yet unconfirmed launch date later this year.
So, are you ready to take a look at the new Nissan X-Trail? Then hit play on the video below and see for yourself why the latest version of this popular vehicle is going to revolutionise SUV safety in South Africa.
Nissan ProPilot Technology is at the Heart of the X-Trial
Since 2016 Nissan ProPilot has been an integral part of the Nissan brand overseas, and now thanks to the 2018 Nissan X-Trail, we South African’s will get our first taste of the future of automotive safety. Although Nissan SA has not released much in the way of technical safety specs for the New X-Trail, it has been confirmed that all of the latest X-Trail variants will contain certain elements of Intelligent Mobility. What these will be exactly still remain a mystery at this time, but just take a look at the Nissan ProPilot video below to get a better understanding of what can be expected:
As one can see above, Nissan ProPilot is able to control the steering, acceleration and braking of a vehicle within a single lane on well-marked highways. This is at normal high cruising speeds as well as in heavily congested traffic. If some, or even all, of these features are included in the New X-Trail, then it could make this already popular SUV the perfect South African family vehicle.
What Has Changed Looks Wise?
The X-Trail has a number of exterior design changes that are easy to see when looking at the vehicle from the front. First up there is the much larger ‘V-motion’ grille, then there is the redesigned bumper as well as the new look headlights that are now sporting the signature ‘boomerang’ daytime running lights. And along with the LED headlights, it is expected that the New 2018 Nissan X-Trail will also include Nissan’s adaptive front lighting system.
From the side, the only major change to the look of the latest X-Trail is the addition of a completely new alloy wheel design, and the rear remains unchanged, but still provides a very attractive silhouette for people to admire as a person zooms off into the distance in their 2018 X-Trail.
